ARLINGTON — The Texas Rangers have announced Nolan Ryan will retire as chief executive officer from the Texas Rangers. His retirement will go into effect on Oct. 31.

Ryan has worked with the Rangers over the last six years. In February 2008 he became the team's 10th president. A little more than three years later, he was named the CEO.

“This is the right time for me to step down from my role of overseeing the Rangers organization,” Ryan said in a statement released by the team. “I am extremely proud of what this organization has accomplished. On the field, we have enjoyed great success at the major league level. The fans have supported us in record numbers the last two years we have been able to upgrade the ballpark and enhance the in-game experience to reward that loyalty."
